WE ARE ONE
Look, i^imme a hand, what does it matter way I come from?
Ihey tell me, my people catch Jacks off the J I i it
With these two feet, I stood on Lower Bay Sti i
And saw fishermen drag in nets breaking with 1 1 I
In St. Vincent,
What you mean, way I come from?
I remember my trips to the Trinidad markets
With honey-tongued vendors luring me with a
'M)oo doo darling!"
^e«, one day, in a market in Guadeloupe
FmM lips I thought were french
Came the sweet, english-island accent,
''Come darling!" M
And I knew all over again, ^k
That we are one. I %
What you mean way I come from?
Geologists tell us that in times past.
All these islands constituted one great land n is
So, I have an accent? ^
You do too. ^
You sound strange to me, and I to you.
But we are one.
Jamaicans like ackee and saltfish, \
Barbadians like the flying fish, «
Trinidadians like the cascadoo, *
And no doubt, if they try the ackee and flyiwp, // //
They'd like it too.
We Are One!
It would seem that the sum total of all life's aspira-
tions should be toward a better world in which to live. We
believe that our success in developing worthwhile lives
rests on our abilities to discover new and better means
toward our ultimate goals -- goals that are based on four
fundamental phases of life's activities, namely, Education,
Culture, Economics, and Social Advancements.
You must explore all avenues as you seek new and better
ways and means to throw off the yokes of poverty, disease,
and ill will. You must be courageous and daring. You must
perfect the old and seek out the new.
With these thoughts, we dedicate the future to the
University of Maryland Eastern Shore graduating class of
Homecoming this year was very exciting, it car-
ried the theme: "The Sky is the Limit."

ketball games and a concert by "Pieces of a Dream".

Life at VMES
When Things Go Wrong As They Sometimes Will
When The Road You Are Trudging Seems All Uphill
When The Funds Are Low And The Debts Are High
When You Want To Smile But Have To Sigh
When Care Is Pressing You Down A Bit
Rest If You Must But Don't You Quit
Life Is Queer With Its Twists And Turns
As Everyone Of Us Sometimes Learns
; And Many A Fellow Turns About
When He Might Have Won Had He Stuck It Out
And He Learned Too Late When The Night Came Down
How Close He Was To The Golden Crown
J Often Our Goal Is Nearer Than It Seems
^ To A Faint And Fault ering Man
Often Our Struggler Has Given Up
I, When He Might Have Captured The Victor's Cup
Don't Give Up Though The Pace Seems Slow
You May Succeed With Another Blow
Success Is Failure Turned Inside Out
The Silver Tint Of The Clouds Of Doubt
You Never Can Tell How Close You Are
You May Be Near When It Seems Afar
So Stick To The Fight When You Are Hardest Hit
It's When Things Seem "Worst" That You Must Not Quit!
Alpha Kappa Alpha is the first Greek-letter sorority among Negro college women. Alpha Kappa Alpha was
founded at Howard University in Washington, B.C. on January 15, 1908. Our founders organized themselves
with the purpose in mind "to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, improve the social
status of the race, promote unity and friendship among college women, and keep alive within the alumnae an in-
terest in college life and progressive movements emanating therefrom." Alpha Kappa Alpha was incorporated
under the laws of the District of Columbia and the original chapter became the Alpha chapter in 1913. Alpha
Kappa Alpha then began to expand to other college campuses.
In keeping with our intended purpose, Alpha Kappa Alpha today participates in a number of civic, social,
and educational services, among these are scholarship funds and a national health program. Alpha Kappa
Alpha is a member of the American Council on Human Rights.
ALPHA PHI ALPHA
From the Men of Purpose
Good will is the monarch of this house. Men, unacquainted, enter, shake hands, exchange greetings and
depart friends. Cordiality exists among all who abide within.
A Ipha Phi A Ipha Fraternity, Inc. which is the oldest Black Greek-letter Fraternity was founded December 4,
1906, at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. by Nathaniel A. Murray, Henry A. Call is, Charles H. Chapman,
Eugene K. Jones, George B. Kelly, Robert H. Ogle, and Vertner W. Tandy (known to the fraternity as the seven
These seven jewels stuck together through the primaries of organizing this fraternity. Their purpose was to
show the world that they possessed the necessary tools of manly brotherhood to better themselves and contribute
in whatever ways they could in making society better, socially, economically, and culturally.
[\ e, the Delta Nu Chapter of A Ipha Phi A Ipha, believe strongly in the ideals and purpose of our fraternity. We
will continue to rise and multiply, and remain the most unique, and distinguished magnetic fraternal force in
KAPPA ALPHA PSI
A New Dimension In Achievement
Founded on January 5, 1911 as a Black Greek College Fraternity at Indiana University, Kappa A Ipha Psi has
since then indoctrinated approximately 77,000 members into its noble clan.
The Gamma Xi Chapter, here at VMES, has continued the Fraternity's initial objective as a community
serving organization. This "New Era" of brothers has initiated programs and activities such as, the Annual
Blood Drive (in cooperation with the Salisbury Blood Bank). This activity has donated more blood to our
nearby community, than any other Blood Drive on the Delmarva Peninsula. Other activities include The First
Annual Kappa Roundball Classic and The First Annual Kappa Kabaret. These, and other activities which the
brothers have implemented, will continue the growth of the Chapter and the Grand Fraternity.
Kappa Alpha Psi is a new dimension in achievement and another reason to be proud of the heritage here at the
University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
Delta's unity is reflected in the symbolism of the National Flower of the sorority, the Violet.
Deltas are like violets who can not show their fullest beauty while standing alone, but when united as one with
the power of sisterhood focused toward the same goals they will radiate a magnificant force that will conquer
Although at first glance Deltas seem to look alike, on closer inspection, one notes the many subtle, charming,
and individual characteristics that make each one distinctly different from her sister. This difference strength-
ens the unity within the sisterhood because Deltas accept each other as a vital part of the development of an un-

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C. on January 16, 1920 by
Arizona Stemmons, Myrtle Faithful, Pearl A. Neal, Fannie Watts, and Viola Goings. They were encouraged to
establish the sorority by C.R. Taylor and A.L. Langston Taylor, members of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. To
this date, Zeta Phi Beta and Phi Beta Sigma have worked together as official Greek-lettered sister and brother
The objectives, which are Sisterly Love, Womanhood, Service and Scholarship, have brought together women
from all parts of the world who have similar tastes, aspirations, potentialities, and desires. The members of
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. have become a vital part of the community and the world.
On January 9, 1914 three students at Howard University came together to form the nucleus of what has now
become one of the most prestigious and influential Greek-letter college societies.
Sigma's bond of Brotherhood, Scholarship and Service extends beyond the United States and is now
international in scope, which accounts for its great diversity of character.
Phi Beta Sigma's motto: "Culture for Service and Service for Humanity" exemplies the dedication of its
members to serve Humanity and enhance its culture through the promotion of Education, Bigger and Better
Black Business and Social Action.
The Alpha Mu Chapter was established in 1935 and enjoys the distinction of being the first Greek-letter
Fraternity chartered at U.M.E.S.
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was founded November 17, 1911 at Howard University thus establishing
itself as the first Black Fraternity to be instituted on a Black campus. By adhering to the four cardinal
principles: Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift, it continues to serve mankind and all causes
consistent with its beliefs.

Soul Explosion, The Band with Emotion and Devotion
The Soul Explosion band which is presently under the direction of Rev. K.A. Martin Sr. has demonstrated
pride, dedication, and service to the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore.
The main concern of the Soul Explosion band is to spread a message of love, joy, peace, and happiness
through music. Their achievements and accomplishments are made possible through hard work and a family
Soul Explosion is more than just a band, it's a proud and close-knit family, a family which uses pride,
dignity, honor, and self-respect as sources of inspiration.
Rev. Martin and his wife have, in addition to conducting a band, taught their members the key to another suc-
cessful year; love, understanding, determination, and most of all devotion.

With his strong determination and academic accom-

Unity is the Key
We, as college men, being aware of the increasing com-
plexity of men's problems, especially those of Black men,
and realizing the necessity of forming an organization for
the purpose of studying and solving such problems, do
therefore organize this fellowhsip in order to cultivate
and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, im-
prove the social stature of the race, promote unity and
fellowship among college men and keep alive within the
graduate an interest in college life and progressive move-
ment emanating therefrom.

Suicide When The Rainbow Is Not Enuf
A Message From The Editor
Dear Members of the Hawk Family,
It has been a pleasure working as Editor-in-Chief
of the 1982-83 Yearbook. I must admit that I am very
pleased with this edition of the Hawk Yearbook. At
the present time, I have no regrets other than not
having an undergraduate section. The response of
underclassmen for picture sessions was so meager, we
decided to exclude them. I apologize to those who
were considerate enough to have their pictures taken.
Hopefully, next year your peers will contribute to the
success of yet another Yearbook.
I'd like to thank the members of the Publications
Review Board for giving me the opportunity to head
My appreciations go out to Ms. Linda Wolfordfor
having the patience to listen to my many complaints
(although I lost the bet, "we met our deadlines"); to
Ms. Alrethia M. Matthews for putting up with my
many moods, for being a friend and trusting me. (I
can't help being spoiled, but I made you laugh, luv
ya); to Dr. Diane Showell for taking time out during
those last minutes to write the dedication thanks for
responding to my distress call; to Mr. Alan Fritch,
Public Relations Officer for keeping us informed of
University activities and visitors. I'd like to espe-
cially thank Mrs. Dorothy Waters our advisor, for
endorsing me as the editor-in-chief, and for giving
me the responsibility of producing the book. I know I
gave you , but I know you believed and had faith
in me. Thanks for treating me to lunch and dinner
those days when I was hungry. Being a vegetarian
isn't bad. Try it, you'll like it. I love you and will
never forget you.
I'd like to thank all my friends who helped me
meet that last deadline, without you, I would have
been a total wreck: Cassandra , Debbie, Donna,
Johnny, Debbie, Beverly, Larry, Darlene. That's what
friends are for . . . caring.
Mike and Karen, I'll never forget either of you.
For without you there would be no me. I thank you
again. "Steph", I don't know what to say, you were
always there when I needed a shoulder to cry on.
Thank you for taking the slack for the rest of the staff
when no one else was there to hear it. Thanks for
understanding and never giving up on me. I told you
this wasn't an easy job, now do you believe me?
I'd like to apologize to Sharon for our misunder-
standing. I hope we can still be friends.
To Mr. Wiles, our school photographer, many,
many thanks. Courtesy is contagious. To the rest of
our staff, I thank you with all of my heart for your
hard work, cooperation, dedication and faith. You
never gave up hope, not even under pressure during
the last seconds of the game. Your thoughts and ideas
were greatly appreciated and I will never forget them
Challenge after challenge, experience after expe-
rience, and finally a touch of class. A step above the
rest. In my eyes this is what every yearbook staff
strives for, aside from quality, quantity and perfec-
tion. I am happy to have had the opportunity to serve
this growing University as a member of the Hawk
The experience gave me an opportunity to spread a
feeling of unity among my peers. This has enhanced
the concept of our theme "Unity holds the key."

Due to the lack of staffing in previous years, I
dedicated my services to be sure that "we" the student
body had a yearbook.
I have enjoyed every moment with the staff and
will continue to be of service to them when needed.
Please, any interested students, join us. Help to
achieve the goals that I, myself, have achieved while
working with the 1983-84 yearbook staff.
We need your support!!

and the wisdom of a Socrates. In doing so, you will
contribute significantly to the legacy of this Institu-

"This is perhaps my last opportunity to address
you — the class of 1983 — as a group, and I would
like to leave you with these final thoughts.
In anticipation, four years seem like a lifetime.
The academic rigor, problems of finance, and person-
al sacrifices all seem to make the college experience
one long, extended struggle. Oftentimes you have, no
doubt, questioned the worth and value of this experi-
ence — particularly given the employment situation
growing out of the economic upheaval of the last
decade. But in the "face" of these would-be adversi-
ties, you persevered, buttressed by the encouragement
and support of your teachers, friends, parents, and
This achievement is not, however, an end within
itself, rather, it is, as the Commencement Exercise
symbolizes, the beginning. It is the beginning of a
life of unlimited responsibility and unending labor
